What makes a switch?
AV switches, also called Switcher, turn signals from different sources to a playback device such as a projector or flat screen.
What differences are there?
An important characteristic of audio-visual switchers is the number of inputs. They may vary between 2 to 12 inputs. Many audio-visual switches also combine multiple signals, such as audio-video switches. Many switches also include a converter or “scaler”. The HDBase-T switches from CYP contain multiple signals, specifically HDMI with audio, infrared, RS232 and Ethernet. The CAT switch from Magenta Research is similar.
There are also controllable audio-visual switches, which may allow for a selection of inputs. Control of the devices from Cypress and Gefen use either an RS232 or an Ethernet interface. The HDCP compatibility of the switch is an important issue for HDMI signals. Another criterion is EDID management.
